Elie Wiesel is known to have said: “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”
In our efforts to resist being actively self-righteous like the Pharisee, may we also pay attention to the self-righteousness of our blindness to others.
Remember — we’re all in this together.
